, they both say an iranian nuclear weapon is unacceptable, but i tend to think that romney would perhaps give israel the green light to bomb sooner than obama might. this is a question of nuance. i happen to wind up on the dovish side of this issue or at least the relatively dovish side and prefer obama's apparently greater restraint and patience, but i think that's the issue where i see potentially a greater disagreement, even though their beginning statement is the same. but then romney has said he'd be less concerned about a possible israeli strike. i'm quite concerned about that. i think the president is, too. >> indeed. eugene, mitt romney in his speech today suggested that the turmoil in the middle east was because, and i'm quoting him, the president has not led. but when romney's advisers are pressed for answers, they tell "the new york times" to come back on november the 7th after the election. is that leadership? >> well, no. i mean, look, let's be honest, the whole thrust of the speech was to make it sound as if mitt romney's foreign policy would be bolder and more leader-like than
presidential politics. look at this, both the romney and obama campaigns are out stumping now, tonight in ohio. governor romney and president obama have 50 possible states to fight over, at least theoretically. they have nine or so swing states that seem to actually be in play. tonight mitt romney and barack obama are both in just one state. mr. romney appearing with chris christie and rob portman in akron, ohio. the president showing up with will.i.am. at ohio state in columbus. >> buckeyes, we need you. we need you fired up. >> we're going to do it. ohio's going to elect me the next president of the united states. >> all the interest in competing in ohio, the desperate need to win the election in ohio, the dualing rallies and the ground games and all of that. all of that comes from the context of a big surprising decision in ohio this afternoon, about how the election is going to be run there this year. back in 2004, the night that the democratic ticket decided not to concede the race on election night because they were waiting on those results from ohio, part of what was happening in ohio i

is on both of them. ryan saying mitt romney's performance makes it more difficult for him. people are suggesting that vice president joe biden is gaffe-ridden and incompetent. what are you expecting from this debate? >> i will go ahead and i would say i'd set the bar pretty high for biden because i think he's a much better debater than obama. one of the reasons biden ended up on the ticket with obama in 2008 was that in 2007 and 2008 running against hillary clinton, running against barack obama, it was biden who are often than not who would steal the show at those democratic debates. it never actually translated into votes for him but he impressed people in the obama campaign as somebody they wanted to have out there. you go farther back in his career when he first ran for president in 1988, he got derailed by a bit of a plagiarism scandal, but when he was using his own words, he was one heck of an orator. that was his reputation. a really strong communicator. i look at biden and his debate skills and communication skills, and i say escapable of doing what barack obama either coul
for their respective candidates. both campaigns aggressively attacking the other over what was said. the romney campaign going after joe biden about his comments about the consulate in benghazi. state department officials testified before a congressional hearing that they had turned down requests for additional security at that consulate. contrast that with what vice president biden said last evening. >> we weren't told they wanted more security there. we did not know they wanted more security again. and by the way we were told exactly, we said exactly what the intelligence community told us, that they knew, that was the assessment. and as the intelligence community changed their view we made it clear they changed their view. >> at the same time right now as this event is going on the white house is saying, well, wait a second, while the say the department knew about the requests the president and the vice president didn't know about them, which might seem to indicate some sort of massive disconnect in the post 9/11 efforts to get all of the government he tk departments talking to each other ab
on the line both men got in their jobs. >> romney is a good man. he cares about 100% of americans in this country. and with respect to that quote, i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. [laughter] it is empty mattally possible. it's been done before. precisely what we're prosing. >> it has never been done before. >> been done a couple times. jack kennedy lowered tax rates. >> oh, now you're jack kennedy. jon: they touched on the biggest issues for americans jobs and the economy. their messages directed at middle class voters. >> can you declare anything off limits? >> mortgage loopholes. higher deductions, from higher income people. >> can you guaranty no one making less than 100,000 have a mortgage deduction impacted? >> this tax as million small businesses. he keeps trying to make you think some movie star, hedge fund guy. >> 97% of the small businesses make less than $250,000 a year. would the no be affected. >> this tax is a million people. a million small businesses. >> does it tax 97% of the american bu
governor romney is going to win ohio this year. host: both of them have been there numerous times to the president just 15 times this year, 30 times since he has taken office. tell me about ohio. caller: ohio is a class a purple state, well balanced between democrats and republicans, a microcosm of the country in the sense that you have blue caller workers, you have -- however, the state is older, probably more caucasian, a little white r. it has really been hit by the economic downturn, especially heavy industry. both sides think they have a real shot at winning the state. i think in the early going, the obama campaign scored well on their class warfare argument. that is one of the staples of the obama campaign, "you are not doing well because this guy in his career is doing too well." now i think the public is beginning to understand that it is the bad economic policies of this administration that is causing everybody to do less well than they should. so i think now mitt romney and paul ryan are starting to pick up. host: what kind of ground game do you need to pick up ohio? gue
's romney up by two leading the president 49% to 47%. folks, this is a tight race as both candidates are keenly aware. romney began in iowa, one of the states that could prove crucial to his hopes for a path to 270 electoral votes. and he was introduced by his son, josh, who had an interesting take on romney's debate preparation. >> we'd say the same lie over and over and my dad learned then not to believe it. so while we didn't go to any of the formal debate preparation, we did the real hard stuff. as a father, he learned how to debate an obstinate child. >> kicking it off by suggesting the president is an obstinate child. that's great, mr. romney. what do you have for sale? >> i am going to put a cap on regulation and any new major regulation will have to be approved by congress. i'm not letting the politicians off the hook. >> absolutely, he's not letting politicians off the hook, just wall street, k street, polluters, abusers, everyone else. the president spent last night rallies supporters at a san francisco fund-raiser telling them he intends to win but only if his backers are
inside "the war room," i'm jennifer grandholm. both president obama and governor romney are pulling out all of the stops to win colorado's nine electoral votes. the latest poll from american research group has romney leading 50% to 46%. last month the same survey had obama leading. so here is david sirota who is author of "back to our future," and cohost of a radio show. and he really knows what people are saying and things. welcome back inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: president obama was doing great until the debate in denver. what did you folks do to our president? >> i think this race was always fluid out here in colorado. there is a huge number of latino voters in this state, and mitt romney is doing terribly among latino voters. i think this will be definitely a turnout election. it is going to be a 2008 turnout or '2010 turnout, and what does that actually look like, and it's really anybody's guess right now. and i would say this, one thing that i think democrats can be -- can feel good about is that senator michael bennett was
which values. let me tell you about the mitt romney that i know. >> incredible. >> you both saw benjamin netanyahu hold up the picture of a bomb with a red line through it. >> thank heavens we have the sanctions in place, and it is in spite of their opposition. all i have to point to is the results. they are four years closer to a nuclear weapon. look, did they come in and inherit a bad situation? absolutely. we are going in the wrong direction. slower than last year, and that was slower than the year before. august was slower than it was in july. >> the republican national committee is responsible for the content of this advertisement. host: next up on "washington journal," getting your reaction to the debate, back. ohio. your opinion of last night? caller: last night was awesome. i think vice president joe biden did an awesome job. last week when the debate was with the president of the united states, president barack obama and governor mitt romney, mitt romney was very rude. he was rude to the president. he was rude to america. i am one of the 47%. i am 55 years old. i started working
. but this one could be different. there is pressure on both men, congressman ryan to keep mitt romney's momentum going, and vice president biden to stop that momentum. the moderator tonight is martha raddatz, and for this debate the candidates will be seated at the table. >> good evening, and welcome to the first and only vice presidential debate of 2012s sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. i'm martha raddatz of abc news, and i am honored to moderate this debate between two moan who have dedicated much of their lives to public service. tonight's debate is divided between domestic and foreign policy issues. and i'm going to move back and forth between foreign and domestic since that is what a vice president or president would have to do. we will have nine different segments. at the beginning of each segment, i will ask both candidates a question, and they will each have two minutes to answer. then i will encourage a discussion between the candidates with follow-up questions. by coin toss, it has been determined that vice president biden will be first to answer the opening questio
was unable to explain the details and defend them among the various proposals. senior adviser to the romney campagin in that joe biden was not able to defend the president's record. both sides making their cases aggressively, and no clear knockdown, but some very tough uppercuts. >> and that leaves us for a week from matter at the university that could be a game changer. >> absolutely. >> a quick commercial break and we'll come back for a little more analysis measures... measure up. money to our schools. "misleading." out here. it. but there's hope. straight to our schools... keeps it there. politicians. to really help our schools, vote yes on thirty-eight. >> historically speaking, vice- presidential candidates are there to be attack dogs. and historically speaking, vice presidential debates don't usually sway the election much at all. tonight, you will decide and we will see you next week for the presidential debate. continuing coverage on your late local news on this fox station, analysis continues on fox news channel on cable and satellite, fox news radio and fox news got comp. i will s
romney i know. do not raise taxes on small businesses because they are our job creators. >> incredible. >> you both saw yahoo! hold up the picture with the red line of a bomb. >> in spite of their opposition. all i have to point to are the results. we are caught -- they are four years closer to a nuclear weapon. do they -- did they come in and inherit a difficult situation? absolutely. they are going in the wrong direction. last year was lower than the year before. jobs growth in september was less than august, and august was slower than it was in july. >> the republican national committee is responsible for the content of this advertising. >> that video ad coming in just from the last hour. the debate emphasizing the republican point on our twitter page. there is this -- there is this -- >> we are joined from long beach california. what did you take away from it? caller: i am a republican from the beginning of the voting career. i was one of the fortunate ones that i was allowed to vote when i turned 18. up until the reagan administration, which i did vote for, and his triple-down the
general and romney supporter mike dewine. gentlemen, thank you both. let me sort of kick this off and answer the first question for you. governor strickland, i assume you believe that president obama will win ohio. back that up for me. >> well, most of the polls over the last several months have shown the president with a consistent -- small but a consistent lead, and that lead seems to have widened within the last 30 days. i believe the president is going to win ohio because he rescued the auto industry, which is so important to our state. he passed the recovery act, which is important to me in terms of keeping police officers and firefighters and teachers and other people, building infrastructure in our state. plus, you know, candy, the president tells the truth, and quite frankly, i don't think mr. romney is a very truthful person when it comes to talking about the economy and what he plans to do. he says, for example, that the ryan budget is a marvelous budget. it doesn't achieve balfour 30 years. it's not a fiscally responsible budget. it voucherizes medicare, and it privatiz
are you finding out? >> both candidates like to say they will create jobs. mitt romney creating studies saying his tax plan will create millions of them. this is what he told wolf earlier this week. >> we're not going to see that growth unless we have a tax policy that encourages businesses small and large to make investments and to hire people. that's why i want to put in place the plan i've described. by the way, it's scored by people at rice university as creating 7 million new jobs. >> romney citing a study that says under certain circumstances the romney tax plan could add 6.8 million jobs. however, diamond says that since romney does not make clear how he would pay for his plan, diamond had to make certain assumptions and depending what loopholes he closes, that could change the results. our verdict here is true with important qualifications on the claim that there is a study that says it would add 7 million jobs. it only adds 7 million if you assume certain details that romney doesn't apply. diamond not a paid adviser has provided? ed a advice to the campaign. mitt romney told "d
there is really no bigger national security. >> absolutely. >> reporter: this country is facing. both president obama and governor romney have said they will prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. even if that means military action. last week, former defense secretary bob gates said a strike on iran's facilities would not work and, quote, could prove catastrophic, haunting us for generations. can the two of you be absolutely clear and specific to the american people how effective would a military strike be? congressman ryan? >> we cannot allow iran to gain a nuclear weapons capability. now, let's take a look at where we have come from. when barack obama was elected, they had enough nuclear material to make one bomb. now they have enough for five. they are racing for a nuclear weapon, they are four years closer. we have had four sanctions on iran, three from the bush administration, one here. and the only reason we got it is because russia watered it down and prevented the sanctions from hitting the central bank. mitt romney proposed the sanctions in 2007 in congress. i have been fighting f
about sanctions in iran -- i would like to move to iran. >> ryan: absolutely. >> both president obama and governor romney have said they will prevent iran from getting a nuke even if they means military action. last week former defense secretary said a strike on iran's facilities would not work and quote, could prove catastrophic haunting us for generations. can the two of you be absolutely clear and specific to the american people how effective would a military strike be? congressman ryan? >> ryan: we cannot allow iran to gain a nuclear weapon's capability. let's take a look at where we have come from. when barack obama was elected they had enough nuclear material to make one bomb and now they have enough for five. they are four years close towards a nuclear weapon's capability. we had four different sanctions against iran one here. mitt romney proposed these ang shuns in 2007. the administration was blocking us every step of the way, only because we had strong bipartisan support for these tough sanctions were we able to overrule. imagine what would have hand if

with mitt romney because he has a history of creating strong job growth both massachusetts, helping out the salt lake city olympics and private sector creating many companies across the country. host: dayton, ohio, democratic caller, greg. caller: i have a question for mr. harrison. he said that congress, he said obama didn't do anything. they passed the healthcare bill, they stopped this economy from going down in the rut. also, when you all time in 2010, this where all the trouble started. when you look at jobs, in the medical field, the jobs are picking up like mad in the medical field. there's a whole lot of jobs in the medical field. you all saying there will be a whole bunch of jobs lost. right now this economy, every person i ask is in the medical field. they're getting jobs in the medical field. how many people want to get a salary that staples get? if you work at staples, you are a associate. the other question is, why do every republican vote no. you all have -- individual ideas for yourself. host: we'll leave it there. guest: i feel good about where the successes of the h
people and otherwise about what this plan really is. >> yeah. >> so i think on both issues, biden put issues on the table that democrats needed to have on the table. >> now, governor, does that not me mean now that the debate between the president and mr. romney that privatization social security is is now on the table, there has to be a big different between the governor and the president now? >> right. but as e.j. said, the president made a very serious mistake because governor romney can go back and say, whoa, mr. president. didn't you say in our first debate that there are very little plans on social security? so why are you talking about this now? and that would be very confusing to voters. >> if the president pinned him down and said, my understanding now is that you're talking privatization. is that not what you're talking? >> and that would be -- >> i don't know that mr. romney wants to walk into that. >> because you're right. at that point the president gives him a choice. either repudiate his running mate or say privatization is on the table. >> and i don't know that he want
